The LT DRIVE delivers gain from warm boost to screaming lead saturation. Blackstar’s patent-applied-for clipping circuit delivers amazing valve-like tone and compression for a wide variety of playing styles.
Patent-Applied-For clipping circuit that matches the tone and response of our valve pedals
Simple and effective Gain, Level, Tone layout
9V battery powered
Small form-factor – great for pedalboards
The Gain knob controls the amount of overdrive or distortion that the pedal will deliver. At low settings, counter clockwise (CCW) the LT DRIVE will deliver a clean boost, which in conjunction with the level control can be used to overdrive an already distorting valve amplifier. As the Gain control is increased clockwise (CW), the sound will become more overdriven moving through crunch tones until, at its maximum position, a full distorted lead tone is arrived at.
The Tone control allows exact adjustment of the treble frequencies within the sound. At low settings, counter clockwise (CCW), the sound will be warm and darker in character. As the control is increased clockwise (CW) the sound will become brighter. At the maximum settings the tone will be aggressive and cutting.
TRUE VALVE-LIKE RESPONSE
A unique clipping circuit in the LT Pedals has been designed and tested to behave just like our successful HT pedals.
All the LT Pedals are able to be ran using a 9V battery or by using a 9V DC power input.
